Well organized, procedure explained, whole crew super nice and motivated! Enough choice of drinks, average lunch. Stay on the island too short because only time at souvenir stands (take money) is possible and not for swimming in a quieter corner. Snorkeling should have taken longer BUT despite everything, it was a cool, fun and exciting day !! ... and we saw dolphins :) Despite 23 guests on the catamaran no tight spaces.

Great trip, Excellent crew

The crew on this Catamaran cruise made the trip extra nice. They follow a strict protocol for safety and instructions to make sure nothing is missed and they are always paying attention to the safety and the comfort of the passengers. We started off lucky, 10+ dolphins came to surface from under our catamaran. Lunch was good and enough was provided. Also catering during the day for drinks was excellent. The crew topped it of for me and my family by taking us to our appartment dock with a private boat ride. Very much appreciated and a dream end to an awesome day!!
